Jack won the toss and elected to bat first. The Manly openers walked out to the crease and tried to get the day started well. Both openers made it through the opening spells and looked to be set, however both were unable to cash in for the runs after the hard work they did early.
Gabriel Harris and Hayden Brown opened the bowling and showed promising signs early. Hayden earned the first wicket after some tight bowling, which bogged the opening pair down. A second wicket to Jonah Anderson had Manly up and in with a chance. At this stage Mosman where 2/30 and were moving along at a rate just under 2 an over.
A large partnership between their number 3 and 4 left Manly in trouble. After the two batsman set themselves Manly where unable to bowl the required consistent line and length that would have brought about a wicket. The two batsmen dug in and waited for the bad balls and upped the run rate to around 5 an over for a 10 over period.
The third wicket fell with Mosman on 130. Their number 3 and 4 had batted well and had outplayed us. We were able to get another two wickets before Mosman chased down the 181 with ease. Manly were out played on the day by Mosman in both batting and bowling.
Manly 9 for 181 off 50 (Davies 53, Hole 23, Bariol 23) Defeated by Mosman 5 for 182 off 45.5 (Harris 2/21, Anderson 2/34)
